Vettori: Why they batted first? "I discussed with a few guys and we thought if we can get a good total, we can apply some pressure. They bowled really well, have a varied attack. we never got the momentum going. It's incredibly difficult to defend a total less than 100.

YOunis: It was a good toss to lose. I would have batted first. Razzaq gave us break through. Then Afridi and Gul. We chased int in 13 or 14 overs; it would help our run rate."

Man of the Match UMAR Gul: "It was a special day. We bowled the first six overs very well and took three wickets. Later on, captain told me to go for the wickets. We practice hard for the yorkers and slower ones. Aquib javed (bowling coach) helps and also the movies [Videos] of watching Wasim bhai and Waqar bhai."

When Pakistan play like this, they are such a delightful team to watch. Great for international cricket. Let's see what tomorrow brings. Till then, this is Sriram Veera, signing off. Alvida!

McCullum to Afridi, 2 runs

What a win for Pakistan. They rediscovered their flair and the tournament has come alive. It was floated full and outside off stump and Afridi went for the big slog sweep, top edged it high over midwicket. McCullum ran back and the deep midwicket fielder ran in and they collided as the ball landed between them. Both seem to be ok, though.
